Haha, thanks! It took the whole day to make it.
We had to go to Home Depot, twice! D:


In total it cost me $80.97 to make.
A lot cheaper than another Double level Critter Nation which would be $300 plus tax.

My boys LOVE it. They've been crawling all over it/running back and forth non-stop.
My dad is going to raise the shelving unit, so I can move it back towards the wall.

I was also thinking about painting just the front frame black so it looks like it matches with my dresser. xD

Don't forget to pick a paint with no fumes and would be safe if they some how are able to chew on that part of the wood.
Yeah. I was going to do it on my day off, when I could take them out of my room. ^_^
And I was only going to paint the outside door frame, so at a quick glance it looks black. Haha.
Right now it sticks out like a sore thumb. :p

A miniature drum set, a pile of pine cones, an infant, several empty boxes of bathroom tissue, a cactus, the tv remote.
I hate you! >=P

It has a lot of space up at the top... I think tat your rats would love to have some hammocks and tubes and branches. That extension is amazingly super awesome- its like ratty heaven!

Yeah, I was thinking about putting a tube around the top!
That'll be my next project for my next pay check! Thanks. :)

Here's a little bit of an update.

-> Dad took the shelf down for me, so I could move the cage back.. Did some reorganizing.
Looks a lot neater. :)

Also took their second hammock from the bottom level because they didn't really use it down there and placed it in the extension.
